Summary report in Farsi on educational radios and televisions webinar
With the onset of school closures due to COVID-19 pandemic, many countries turned to online education to ensure that learning never stops.
However, some 826 million students (50%) kept out of classrooms by the pandemic do not have access to a computer at home, around 706 million students lack internet access and 56 million live in areas not covered by mobile networks. Many countries had to quickly find effective solutions and television and radio have proven to be a good alternative in a context where online learning is not possible.
UNESCO and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) organized a virtual workshop on Wednesday 27 May inviting representatives from national broadcasters to present the programmes and innovations put in place as well as discuss the lessons learned on the use of radio and television-based distance learning.
